The Heat (or Cavs I guess, if LeBron goes back) are going to be the team we're going to have to get past to get to the NBA Finals for the next half-decade or so; So, I really want to break-down how we match-up...what we have, what we lack, etc. Problem #1: L. James. There's no one on the current roster that comes even close to being able to match-up against L. James. That's a big deal. Fortunately FA-to-be J. Smith is probably the best LeBron matchup in the entire league (Iguodala isn't bad, if he opts out. Muhammad isn't bad either, if he slips in the draft). If for no other reason, that's a great reason to sign him. Problem #2: D. Wade (or K. Irving). There's not a guard on the current roster that comes even close to being able to match-up against D. Wade (or K. Irving). Don't even talk to me about B. Knight. Fortunately, again, we're in luck - as the perfect match-up for such a guard is projected to be there for our pick, V. Oladipo (the FA market doesn't look quite as good, defensively speaking). Again, if for no other reason, that's a great reason to draft him. Push: J. Calderon (*if we keep him) vs. M. Chalmers (or D. Waiters). Jose's not the greatest defender, but Mario's not the greatest scorer either; that's not a bad match-up (he might struggle a little bit against an athlete like D. Waiters, but I think B. Knight might be able to more or less handle him, if needed). Given what Jose brings to our offense, I think we should keep him. Strength #1 and #2: Might as well talk about them together - the front-court. Drummond (with progression) and Monroe are an enormous match-up advantage against Bosh and Haslem (or Zeller and Thompson). Excellent. C: A. Drummond, V. Kravtsov PF: G. Monroe, J. Jerebko, *C. Villanueva (amnesty?) SF: *J. Smith, K. Singler, K. Middleton SG: *V. Oladipo, R. Stuckey, K. English PG: J. Calderon, B. Knight I kind of like the sound of those two simple additions.. Thoughts?
